    I am using commercial chicken feed.

    All depends on the amount of protein and amino acid in the food. What is the protein percent maybe a pic of the label? What kind of food is it? Are you using just one food?

    You need to define what is sustainable. Economic / environmentally?

    As long as the store has the feed, and you got the money ... then yes. ;)

    About 19% protein.
    I buy oyster shell too in a mash form.
